Slit, T persuade, myself, that tl very great proportion of your numerous readers will agree with me, when I assert, that much valuable information is weekly communicated through the channel of your tespcctab'ie Paper. " 1 cannot, however, help obsetvinj, that yon sometimes appear to be a little partial, 1 and, at, other times, suffer yourself to be misled, hy incorrect information— « fthi>, at least, a palpable instance appeared ill your last publication, in which, under the head of Domestic Information, it was stated, that " The keenly contested plea between the Magistrates and the Kirk Session, respecting the keeping of the Birth Register, ( by mistake generally called the Register of Baptisms) has been decided by the Sheriff in favour of the former, who have shewn right to it for some centuries. Tbe Session seemed to consider it as an Ecclesiastical Institution and concern; but it may, with much more reason, be looked on as a civil one, since it is, de facto, only a Record of Births, not of Baptisms. It is indeed of no great importance which of them do the thing, provided it be well done, and hitherto there have been no complaints." Being no Lawyer, that is to say, neither Advocate nor Solicitor, I shall only observe, in regard to the Sheriff's decision, that, if his Lordship maintains the Magistrates of Aberdeen in the tight of keeping the Record referred to, on the ground of itsbeln^ a civil and not an ecclesiastical concern, as your informant seeius w hint, then every Kick Session in Scot!- « M, thst t. f St. Nicholas or Aberdeen excepted, lias d.- facto usurped the right of the civil authorities, and is maintained therein by the Supreme Court of the land. Whether the Record ought to he denominated Register of Births or of Baptisms is, in my opinion, a point that does not deserve to be discussed. But surely your informant must not have been serious when he asserted, that hitherto there have been no complaints in regard to the keeping of the Register in question. What were the motives which induced the Kirk Session to agitate the question at present I know not, as I have not the honour to belong to that Court.— But I do assure your informant, that I have heard serious complaint', an hundred times, made on the following grounds, viz.— That the Record does not contain above one- third of the Births or Baptisms in the parish ; that the children of the poor are neither registered gratis nor for low fees; that the children of soldiers bom in the parish. have not been registesed, as their parents were unable to pay the fees claimed by the Keeper ; and that a late worthy Clergyman of this city made several unsuccessful eftorts to get them entered. Who has not frequently heard complaints made, with regard to the number of those who take upon them to give out Extracts, or Certificates from the Birth or Baptism Register, and the Fees charged for such Certificates— one charging a Shilling, a second Half- a- Crown, a third his pleasure. I lately saw two Certificates in a family, both given out on the same day, that of the younger child, age under six years, was charged at One Shilling; that of the elder, whoseage did not exceed eight years, was charged at Half- a- Ci- own. Is this regular? Ought it to be tolerated? In answer to the Query, started hy your Informant, I assert, on the best possible authority— that of Acts of Parliament still in force, and of Decisions of the Supreme Court, that Fees are recoverable from Parents for the Births of their Children, in all cases, whether they apply for Registration or not, only by Session Clerks; for the Court of Session recogr. izcs no other Keepers of Baptism Registers. AVUS. To the EDITOR of the ABERUE EN CHRONICLE. SIR, I have all along, been one of those who hated the Tyranny and Usurpation of Bonaparte, and consequently rejoiced at the Deliverance of Europe, and the Restoration of Ferdinand and Louis to their respective thrones ; From alt which, I anticipated the happiest consequences—- but the result is just the reverse cf what L had expected, and I srn constrained, however reluctantly, to acknowledge, that your views of the Deliverance of Europe were, from the beginning, much more correct than mine : for 1 am woefully disappointed, when I observe that, in regard to what is most distressing to mankind, and hurtful to tlieir dearest and most important rights and privileges, ranee of the great bulk of the Roman Catholic people. I sm acquainted with Roman Cathi'ics who are as much ashamed of, and detest in as great a degree, the bigotry and intolerance of persecuting priest?, as any Protestant can do ; and tr. y opinion is, that Roman Catholics of themselves would never persecute those who differ from them in religious matters, if they were not instigated anc5 encouraged thereto by an interested^ cruel, profligate, and bigoted priesthood, supported Dy. a weak, ignorant, and priestridden Government ; and this sentiment I ground upon the following authorities. Cardinal Mazarine, when counselling the Queen Regent concerning the Frenth Clergy, says— " The sacred order for these many years had but been a thin harvest of excellent persons. Men follow after nice questions, live idly, do net embrace serious studies. All is done with pomp, my, if any sermons be to be made, and the very venerable sacrifice offered of their office, th-. y lay claim t i nothing but their rrvits: the dcry of preaching, bieh is : iie --. rincipaf citgtvity of a Bi- hop, they quit to anyone, though nevirsq insttffki.- nt. They think themselves Bishop er. oy^ b if tltey can but ride in fine coaches, with their arms set on, oatvy one another in rich liveries and lacqwais; and punish with rigour those that transgress in the least matters.— Perpetual hunters of Ladies Couches, not without undervaluing the Pastoral Staff, & c— Priolo, Bock 1, f , 20. And Priolo, although himself a staunch Roman Catholic, and one who very much lamented the Reformation, was far from being of a persecuting spirit. To shew you h'ts candour and impartiality, I beg leave to quote the following extract from his Book, which wr. s dedicated To the most Serene DuTee and August Senate of the Republic of Venice, dated at Paris, on New Tsar's Day, 1665. " John Calvin, at first called Chauvin of Mr, yon, was the Author of the Innovation, that having quitted France, retired to Geneva, whether such persons flock and arc in high credit. Charles was King and Katheritie Queen Mother, who yet made no ecruplr to prosecute the Innovators with fire and aword, as criminals and deserving mo t exquisite torments. Such tortures hath foolish- man invented against himself upon easiness eifpers. wasion. At Sr. BartholomewY- diy it was resolved at one stroke to cut off tbe springing Hydras head, by an action unworthy of the French name, and such as the Seyn with all its waters can never wash out. The religion at present theck'd, burst out again not only in France, but over the Swisse, German, and English— Calvin set up ritus contrary to the divine institutions: and as a principle doctrine instilled into his followers, that the sanctifying wafer, the sacred bread is nottu'ned into Christ by the muttering cf the priest, which I tremble to mention. They vilifiothe sacrifice of the Mass, and prayers far the Dead. - That there is a Heaven and Hell they are persvvaded, but not stall that there is a Purgatory. That the Pope cannot make saints ; they give the Virgin bat little honour, prayer, they say, is not to be made to her. Reliques and dead bones of saints they make a jest of. Indulgences foe buying of sins, they confidently aifirm, men might employ their'fnoue^ better. The Pope they despise, as a mere phantosi, do noftdread his Bulls, nor the Vatican thunder bolts t affirm to be a sword whose edge consists in bare imagination. To empty the sitri; of sin into the ears of the Priest, > bey take • fe' a pjjftcipfe « rgtin. ei: j of a Bn4b. 1* inW » TrjE. T'le load of confession they call a pack of human corntittstionsv In other things always pretend the Eible, quote Scriptures; in disputes tire our strongest, dissatisfie those of middle parts, catch not a few. Their Teacheisthey call Ministers, not distinguished from the laity ; and because they have like passions as other men, thsy allow them to marry wives of their own, counting that better than lor them to corrupt other mens; which they malignantly charge upon the unmarried and chast order. They have their Communions with a Crust of Bread, and sip of Wine on certain days in memory of the Lord's Supper. That God being a pute Spirit, is to be worshiped with a pure spirit: not with beads, which they call in derision, the serpents eggs. Geneva the head of the religion.— In that place men and women are alike obstinate, and if so be they were forced to receive the Catholicks, they would stand more in fear of life than death." P. ' 22. likely to increase his popularity ar. Tingtha ho aten after place-. " 1' here was some discussion in ths Chamber of Deputies in Secret Committee- on the 21 inst, touching Emigrants and E ni- rant property, A proposition for, continuing the laiv of the 5. it L" fember, 181- i, in thr- sr favour, two years longer, was adopted with only four dissentient voices. This law restores unsold Emigrant property to tbe original proprietors, and by one of its article? protects itit'm from beiag iusd by their creditors until the end of the year 181S,— » By the proposition sow adopted, this respite is extended until the year 1818. Iri the accounts from Niiwies to, the 2Gtb of November, the Dtike of Angoitletne nukes a prominent figure, but we do not find from them that his Royal Highness has made any extraordinary exertions for the protection of the Pcatest-- snt9, or that their wrongs have been avenged b\- the puokSiracfti fef a single actor in those atroeif Oil; CXCCWl- S.

Marshal the Duke of Wellington the command in chief of those troops, which, according to the 5th article of tbe treaty, concluded this day witf^ France, are to remain in this country during a certain number of years, the undersigned Mini.- stcrs, & c. Sec. & c . think it their duty to give; some explanation to his Excellency the Duke de Richelieu as to the nature and extent of the powers attached to this command. Although chiefly guided with respect to this, measure, by motives tending to the safety and welfare of their subjects, and being very far from having any intention of employing their troops in. aid of the Police, or of the internal Administration of France, nr in any manner that miglit compromise or interfere with the free cxercise of the Royal authority in this country, the Allied Sovereigns have, however, in consideration of the high interest which they take in supporting the power of legitimate Sovereigns, promised to hia most Christian Majesty to support him with their' arms against every revolutionary convulsion,' which might tend to overthrow, by force, ths order of things at present established, and to menace, also, again the general tranquillity of Europe. They do not, however, dissemble that in the variety of forms under whic: the revolutionary spirit might again manifest itself ia France, doubts might arise as to the nature of the case which might call for the titters ntion of. foreigtt f » Me| suiti, f& pj^ f. sstfe*' AffituHy o5 framing ai. Jf instructions pret iaely applicable to each particular case, the Allied Sovereign's have thought it bi tter to leave il to'the tried prudence and discretion of the Duke of Wellington, to decide when and how far it may be advisable to eaj. ploy the troops under his orders, always suppas, ing that he would not in any case so determine without having concerted his measures tyUti tog- King of France, or without giving information as soon as possible to the Allied Sovereigns, of the motives which may have induced him to coma to such a determination. And, as in order to guide the. Duke of Wellington in ths choice o£ arrangements, it will be important that lis And of the Popes, in another place, he says—• " It is an usual thing with Popes to hate their predessors kinsmen, as having pillaged all. None of them take warning, but are still ail dissolute, nor contented to enjoy what they can get. They mind not strictly the public concern ; for why should they, a matter that continues net long, and afterwards comes to none of theirs. They are greedy of sudden casualties, and making haste amidst things uncertain, gape after the present. Catch at money upon all occasions ; aud offences they connive at; for favour and fees granting indulgences."— Book 2, p. GO.* I will now conclude, by giving you one extract more on this subject, from a well known Book, which Piiests and Ministers of al! denominations profess to approve of, and are bound to obey ; which clearly proves by analogy, tbe absurdity and iniquity of persecuting any individual ^ for the sake of Religion. " A servant went to his Master, and told hitn, that there were tares growing up among the wheat, and he wished for an order to root them up; hut his Master commanded him to let both grow to2e'hcr, until the harvest." But ala6 ! the history of Christendom abundantly testifies, that this tolerating command, as well a3 others contained in the same Book, have been entirely lost sight of bv ambitious, seliinterpsted, and persecuting Priests, and th^- ir adherents, who have acted in direct opposition to the authority of Him, who " came not to destroy men's lives but to save them." P H I L A N I HROPOS.

The gates of the Palace wiil be opened at eight and shut at half- pasr niue j a'ter this hour tickets will not be admitted. This is tbe only mention made of Marshal Ne- y. The proceedings of the Chamber of Deputies are still enveloped in mystery. The MinisUr > t Justice, Barbe Marbois, against whom a clamour has been raised by the more desperate royalists, is still in the full exercise of the powers of his office. He proposed in the Sitting of the 1st, the suppression of the places of Substitutes of j the Enid's Procureur- Oeneral, a measure nui his arrangements, it will be should he correctly informed of the events which may occur in France, the Ministers o! the four Allied Courts, accredited to his most Christian Majesty, have received orders to maintain a regular correspondence with the Duke of Wellington, and to provide at the same ti ne far an intermediate one between the French Government and the Commander- in- Chief of the . Allied troops, for the putpuse of transmitting to the French Government the communications which the Duke of Wellington may have occasion to address to it, and of communicating to the Marshal tbe suggestions or requXitions which the Court of France may wish in future to make to him. Th-> undersigned flatter themselves that the Duke de Richelieu will readily recognise in these arrangements the same character and the same principles, which have been manifested in concerting and adopting the measures of the military occupations of a part of Fiance. They carry with them also, on quitting this country, the consoling persuasion, that notwithstanding the elems- nts of disorder, which France may still contain, the effecfe of Revolutionary events, a wise and paternal Government proceeding in a proper manner to tranquillize and conciliate the minds of the people, and abstaining from every act, contrary to such a system, may not only succeed in maintaining the public tranquillity, but also in reestablishing universal union and confidence, relieving likewise as much as the proceedings ot tha Government can eftect it, the Allied Powers, from the pa. tifut necessity of having recourse to these measures, which, in case of any new convulsions, would be imperiously prescribed to them by the duty of providing for the safety of their own subjects, and the general tranquillity of Europe.

General Lagarde is getting better daily ; Professor Depech, Ordinary Councillor of the King, who has been sent for from Montpellier to attend him, has extracted several splinters of the collar bone which was fractured, as well as the bail, which was found at the lower part of the back of the neck, behind the cariated artery. PARIS, Dec. 1 The Duke d'Angouleme left Grenoble, where he had passed three days, on the 24- h. The Prince was so satisfied with the reception of the inhabitants of that city, that he said to the Duke de Guichc—" Well, d'Agoust gains his cause completely, his opinion of the inhabitants of Grenoble is fully justified." At the moment of his departure, when just ready to mount into his carriage, the Duke dsA » gOuleme said to the persons about him, « ' I am very glad t o have seen with my own eyes ; 1 know that the inhabitants of Grenoble took no part in the events of the month of March. They were slide ring and faithful. I shall hasten to inform the K: g of it. In fact, he knows it already." This speech has filled all the inhabitants of Grenoble with joy. The Duke d'Angouleme has had the goodness to scud to the King, with his recommendation, a Memorial, the object of which is, lo keep a Royal Court ot Justice" at Grenoble. The Prince has even deigned to add, that he hoped to bbtain this favour. H i s Royal Highness was expected on the 28th at Thouiouse, whence he would go to Bayonoe. Tbe Rihg has established a Board tor the managt merit of the British and Irish Catholic Establishments in France. I march away the Britilh. troops, they will begin to recover their senses." Some hint of these conversation got wind in Paris, and reached the circle of the Thuil'eries. A courtier was dispatched to soften his Grace, who was not. to be easily mtjslfed, but repeated nearly the same sentiments, in nearly the same terms, He was then sent for bv th? King himself, who tried to talk liitn over. The Duke was courteous and respectful— but perfectly unmoved. This interview was thus reported to the intimates of the Palace : Eh lien! Le Due de IE. a ete ice. II ma'a fait Vamend honorable, et je lui a f\ ardonnc% tout !"—•' Well 1 the Duke of Wellington has been here. He has mude an ample apology, and 1 have forgiven him every thing !" The propriety of recalling Fouche from Dresden, and putting him upon his trial, is said in private letters to be under discussion in the Chamber of Deputies. It is added, that the Chamber of Deputies is disposed not only to attack Fouche, but all the other members of the fate Administration, in consequence of a paper signed by them, accusing the majority of the Chamber of being a Royalist faction, whose violence would ruin both the King and the Country. It appears by private letters, that the evacuation of the French capital by foreign troops is merely nominal. There are several battalions of British troops ( Guards) in Paris, Lord Hill retains his military command in the capital, and the heights and villages surrounding the city continue to be Occupied by the army under the Duke of Wellington. The Parisians are clamorous, ard cot without reason, at the continuance ol Bntish troops ill the Capital beyond the time specified in the treaty. THE DUKE OF W E L L I N G T O N — T h e following statement has been published, in consequence of an assertion in the French papers, that the D " k e had received a blue ribbon, and the estate of Gfoisboia:—" It ha « long been thoroughly understood, that the Duke is no favourite at the French Court ; England, indeed, seems to be the object of hatred there, in proportion to the benefits she and she alone— has conferred v.' on the Royal party. Ever since the Duke proved himfelf an advocate for constitutional liberty in Fiance, by recommending to his Majesty Fouche and Talleyrand, for his Ministers ; and a protector of public justice, by restoring to foreign countries the treasures of which they had been robbed, every opportunity has been taken, by certain grand personages, of evincing to his Grace just so much of their dislike as would hurt his teelings, without provoking his serious resentment. When tlie Order of the Golden Fleece was sent by Fe rdinand to the Duke de Berri, the Duke of Wellington, amongst the other Knights of the Order, w i asked to attend his investiture. On the Duke's entrance, bis Majesty merely Haiti, " Bon jour, Milor ; voui n'avez pas vos decorations j" atid'fcrthwith turned away from him. T h e courtiers, we need not acid, were in the same spirit, rind his Grace was treated universally with the most pointed neglect. The Duke had tao much dignity of mind to complain of this rudeness ; but alter it had become the talk oi Paris, whose wise gossips began ' to chuckle 9t the supposed mortification of the Englishman, a gentleman connected with the British Govern, ment askerl the Duke of Wellington, whether report said true ? " Why, how did y • come to hear this," replied his Grace : " I am sure I never spoke of it " — N o , " said the other ' « but it is all about the t o w n . " — " W e l l , " answered his Grace, " since you put the question to me, I tell you, it is true enough j they have every thing but' « pt't> fy " iustiltfd me ; I want no favour from them, nor tt> he treated with more than common civility due to an- English gentleman ; but an I do not rfiiich covet streU a nieide of ree* j) tio! i, 1 shall list jjo near them again.

LUYDEN, NCV. 2 9 - — T h e troubles which since the return of Louis X V I I I . have not ceased to agitate the South of France, have assumed a more serious character than ever, and the event has proved that the accounts we gave from time to time were exact, though the Paris journals were angry, and have censured » our articles with an indecent severity. We knew that the journey of the Duke D'Angouleme to the South, had for its object to calm people's minds and preach tolerance. If this was his object, it has completely failed. ( Here follows the mention of the assassination of General Lagarde, and the King's Ordinance.) But none of the Paris Journals have made mention of what passed as Nismes during the stay » f the Duke D'Angouleme in that city. Impartiallv making it our duty to shew facts in their true light, we shall supply the silence, and add here some details coming from good authority, and extracted from several letters, received from Languedoc, stating in substance what follows: " The Duke D'Angouleme, who went in tlie beginning of November to Nismes, received, during his stay there, two members of the Protestant Consistory, who were the only ones that had not taken flight, one of whom was the President and Minister Oliver Desir. ont. The Duke expressed to the Deputation his regret and the chagrin that the persecutions to which the Protestants in the South had been exposed had caused him, and assured them that they should be in future prevented, and even kept down by force of arms, and that the King's Government would afford the Protestants all protection ; that therefore all their temples should be immediately opened again, and that they might fretly exercise their worship. The D u k e D ' A n - gouleme at the same time represented to this Deputation, that the inhabitants of the comt. jties had dohfc very iil in not giving up their arms when they were callejj upon so to do. One of the Deputation observed, that the inhabitants, though armed, had already experienced so much persecution from the soi disant royalists, that they thought themselves obliged, for the sake of their own safety, not to suffer themselves to be disarmed. He even went further, and requested the Prince to publish a Proclamation at Nismes, to make known bis opinions and favourable sentiments towards the Protestants, and exhort the people no longer to persecute them, under the pretext of Royalism ; but the Prince refused this just demand, alleging that his powers diu not authorise him to make such Proclamation. " This confession of the Duke's confounded the Protestants, and inflamed the audacity of their persecutors. It is even said that the Deputation of the Protestants, in order to avoid the insults of the populace, was conducted to the Duke by a military escort, and entered by a back door the house where the Prince put up. " According to some accounts, the Protestant Deputies secretly. left the town to pay their respects to the D u k e , and to recommend their interests to him before he entered the city. Idowever it be, on the Sunday after the Duke's departure, Divine Service was again performed in a Protestant Church, the entrance of which was guarded by a considerable armed force ; but thi precaution was in vain. The people being informed that the church was open, collected together and went thither, uttering imprecations ana menaces, forced the guard, and entered the church, those who were in it with difficulty saving themselves by immediate flight. General Legarde being informed of this, strengthened the guard and repaired in person lo the spot.—[[ Here foMows an account of his being shot, j " Some people attribute these last troubles at Nismes to the refusal of the D u k e of Angouleme, by some ecclesiastics, to set at liberty the famous Tasaellon ( or, as others spell it, Trestaillon), chief of a band of assassins, telling them their de mand was more than unreasonable, and that this man was to be judged by the competent tribunal, to which he had been delivered, as the Duke, who was at Toulouse when this passed, hastened to return to Nismes, as suou as be was informed of it. " But one is astonished that the police, so active under Bonaparte, and which has so long kept down those monsters, when confided to the same hands under Louis X V I I I . should have been unable to restrain them any longer, should let them commit their crimes with impunity." HAMBURGH, NOV. 28 Some public prints speak of a fermentation which they say prevails in Sweden, and of a conspiracy that has been formed again6t the Crown Prince. One of the Senators, say they, mixed poison in a cup of tea intended for the Prince, but which was drank by somebody else in tbe company, who soon after died. Farther, an officer had, by brilliant promises, induced a soldier to shoot the Prince, at a review, but the soldier, in his contusion, shot, instead of the Priace, the horse cu which he rode. A pamphh- t fins also been published at parti'-, the subject of which is to", recommend theexpui sion of the present King of Sweden, with his adopted son the Crown Prince, and the restoration of the Ex- King Gustavus Adolphus, now on a visit to the Holy Land, under the title o f. Count Gottorp. The division of the spoil of France is still excitino a more than speculative interest among the expectant Slates. An article from the Maine gives the following account of the territorial acquisitions and exchanges already made and resolved upon : The kingdom of the Netherlands obtains of the territory ceded by France, all that formerly made a part of the departments of the Saare and the Moselle ; Austria takes part, separated from the department of the Lnwer Rhine, with Landau, which will, however, be exchanged with Bavaria, for the Inn- viertel, the Hansruck- viertel, a part of Salzburg, the Bailiage of Vils in the Tyrol, and some other inconsiderable districts ; Bavaria obtains Deux Ponts, Kaiserslautern, Spire, Landau, ( viz, the town, the citadel is a fortress of the Confederation, which Bavaria has the right to garrison) and some other districts. It loses 2 8 7 ) 0 0 0 subjects, but obtains 4- 69,608 in their stead ; besides this the Palatinate is to fall to Bavaria, when the direct line of the present Grand Duke is extinct. Darmstadt cedes to Prussia , the Duchy of Westphalia; to Bavaria four Bailiages, among which is Mellenberg j to Hesse Cassel ore Bailiage, in all 185,000, but it obtains 2 0 1 , 7 0 4 instead, with the citie3 of Mentz and Worms, and the Principality of Isenburg. Relative to the partition of the 7 0 0 millions of francs to be paid by France to the Allied Powers, the Hamburgh papers contain a very long article entitled a Protocol, which disposes of this money in the following manner. The reasons for allow- — - W i t h regard to the lOg Spain, Portugal, Denmark, and Switzerland, to share in the spoil are curious : The first Article relates to the erection of fortresses, for which purpose the fourth part of 7 50 millions, 5 0 millions being added on account of the cession of the fortress of Sarre- Louis, which makes it unnecessary to erect a fortress on that side. Thus the sum of 1S7 § millions is appointed for fortresses, viz. 1374 ' n money and Saare Louis, which is valued at 5 0 millions. Of this sum the Netherlands obtain 6 0 millions ; Bavaria 15 millions; Spain, 7 § millions; Sardinia, 10 millions ; five millions for the fortifications of Mentz ; and 2 0 millions to build a new fortress on the Upper Rhine: together 137£ millions. There remains, therefore, 5671 millions to be divided ; though all the Allied Courts have shown equal zeal, yet some, as Sweden, have been dispensed from active cooperation; and others, as Spain, Portugal, and Denmark, have been hindered from effectually contributing to the result. Switzerland has not acceded to the treaty - f the 2 5 t h of March on the same footing as the other Powers. However, to give them a just indemnity it is agreed to divide 12£ millions among them, so that Spain obtains five millions, Portugal two, Denmark two and a half, and Switzerland three millions. The burthen of the war having fallen on the Armies of the Duke of Wellington and Prince Blucher, and thes* Armies having also taken Paris, it if agreed to give twenty- five millions of the Freach contribution to Great Britain, and twenty five to Prussia, reserving to Great Britain to arrange with the other Powers, whose troops formed a part of the Arjny of the Duke of Wellington. Of the other five hundred millions Prussia, Austria, Russia, and England obtain each one- fifth between them. Sardinia and the Netherlands to be excluded, because they have received such an accession of territory, and their share to be divided between Austria and Prussia. BRUSSELS, Dec. 1.— It is to- day that the allied troops are to occupy Valenciennes, Conde, Bouchain, and Chariemorit. Among the persons whom the present state cf affairs in France has brought to seek an asylum in this city, are Madame Hamelin and Mr. Benjamin Constant. Dee. 2 The 4th and last column of the l » t corps of the Russian army arrived to- day, and will depart the day after to- morow, to proceed to the Prussian Provinces on the Rhine, The 6th corps, commanded by Genera! Tauetizien, has broken tip from Picardy, and is proceeding to pass through Hainault and Brabant, to cross the Meuse at Liege. The Austrian Observer contains the following article :— 5 1 T h e peace happily re- established between the English factory at Canton and the Chinese Government, was not of long duration. The Empero,' of China has issued au edict, in. which he has expressed his extreme displeasure at the conduct of Sir G . Staunton, and describes the English as an ungrateful people, who were undeserving of the favours with which his Majesty had loaded them. They are not worthy, says he, to inhabit the celestial hemisphere ( China.) In exchange for goods for exportation, they introduced into this country nothing but articles of luxury, which corrupt the faithful subjects of his Majesty. In short, he add3, if the supercargoes will not be content with the mild aud paternal protection of the Chinese government, the best tiling they can do is to leave the country. The supercargoes heteupon deliberated, whether il would not be advisable to ^ suspend all ulterior operations : one commercial house at Canton has deemed it right to suspend them for a year." AMERICA. WAR WITH THE CREEK INDIANS. We have been favoured with the perusal of a letter from Colonel Clinch, dated Fort Johnson, Charleston, Oct. 22, 1815, which says—" From the last accounts frun the Creek Indians, war with them is certain. Their force is estimated at 5 0 0 0 , including all parties." AUGUSTA ( GEORGIA), Oct 2 3 . — W e under, staud by information late from the Cteek nation, that in consequence of the ill health of Colonel Hawkins, one of the Commissioners, the running of the boundary line will be suspended for a few days, and that the troops in advance will tall back as fa a as Fort Mitchell, on the Chatatsbochy. The Indians are decidedly opposed to running the line, and are determined to make every exertion to oppose it. Their movement indicates the most determined hostility, but as yet they fiave committed no act of open outrage. It is repotted from a source that we believe entitled to credit, that the Big Warri.-. r h~ s made application to the Chotaws for assistance in a war against the Whites, to prevent them from taking away, as he says, a part of his country S T . S T E P H E N S , Oct. 6. Treaty with the Creek Indiana at Fort Jackson, we have the following information : — " By a Gentleman of uiHoubted veracity immediately thioiigh the nation, and who arrived here last evening, we learn that the conference had certainly broken up without effecting its object. The Big Warrior and his party, together witii the several tribes, have determined tn oppose, to the extent of their pieans, the running o f t h e line. The Big Warrior stated, that in either case, entire destruction to their nation was inevitable, and that it they suffered the line to be run, their territories would be too limited to subsist by hunting. " The. Indians were moving off from the road, and showed evident signs of dissatisfaction." NEW YORK, Oct. 3 1 . — T h e P e a c o c k has arrived below from a cruize in the Straits of Sunda. She captured before hearing of the Peace four Indiamen, two of which were burnt, one. given up for the transportation of prisoners, and the other a cru: zer to the East Lidia C- mpar. y, was restored, inconsequence of her furnishing information of the Peace. The Peacock touched at Bourbon and St. Helena for fresh supplies, and left the latter place 20th September. She has on b' ard a quantity of opium, and a few thousand dollars in wrought gold, captured iu the Union, a rich country ship. The Union was captured on the 14th June.— A f t e r her crew was taken out, together with a part of her cargo, she was burnt. Another of the vessels mentioned above, the ship Venus, from the Isle of France, wascaptur. ed 30th June, and given up as a cartel to the prisoners. The third, the ship Brio, also from the Ise of France, was captured on 30th June, and burnt. The last, the Nautilus, of 14 guns, aud 130 men, was captured off Nauguit Point, on the 1st of July, after an exchange of a single broadside. The Nautilus commenced the firing, and, we understand, she had seven men kified and fourteen wounded ; and that none were either killed or wounded on board the Peacock. On her homeward voyage the Peacock spoke ( in lat. 3 7 . long. 18. 30.) the ship Caledonia, Roberts, seventy- three days from Philadelphia, bound to Canton. The schooner Cintra, Phelps, from N e w York, touched at St. Helena on the 18th of Sept. on her way to the Isle of France. The Peacock has been absent from the port more than nine months, during five of which she has been at sea, and has not lost a man cither by sickness or in battle. One cf her crew, however, lost his life by a fall from the forctop gallant yard. Our readers will probably be surprised to barn the number of cotton manufactories, the quantity of cotton used, and the value of the cloth annually made in Rhode Island. The following paragraph on the subject is extracted from a memorial, drawn up by the cotton manufacturers of Providence and its vicinity ; — " It has been satisfactorily ascertained, that in the small district alone comprised within a circle of 30 miles trom Providence, there are not less than 140 manufactories, containing in actual operation more than 130,000 spindles, capable of holding a much larger number, few of them having yet received their full compliment of machinery.— The quantify of cotton which, in . their present state, they spin a year, may he computed at 2 9 , 0 0 0 bales, which when manufactured into clotn of the descriptions commonly made, will produce 2 7 , 8 1 0 , 0 0 0 yards, the weaving of which, at an average price of eight cents, amounts to 2 , 2 2 7 , 2 0 0 dollars, and the total value of the cloth will exceed 6 , 0 0 0 , 0 0 0 of dollars, To complete the manufacture from the raw material, until the goods are fit for mci ket, it is estimated would aftord steady and constant employment to 2 6 , 0 0 0 persons." TB_ salt witter that Captain Carder, to prevent tl* being used in a raw state, frequently threatened to throw it overboard.) they made weak grog, which was sparingly sewed out to them in the heel of an old shoe, the best substitute they could find for a glass. The ship had been much'infested with, rats ; and after these vermin were driven from their lurking places below by the water, they took refuge on those parts whictl were left dry, and openly run about Rmrfng'the people on the forecastle. Fro n this s'iitionr Villi Captain would not permit them to be driven, lest^ in the extremity of their distress, should trt) friendly sail appear in view, they might ' ultimate!";' be compelled to have recourse to th'eSei troublesome guests, as a temporary respite tovi{ 4 piring nature ! But the rats Were a terrible annoyance to the almost exhausted sufferers: as the vermin fell a prey to want, they devoured each other; nay, they even attacked the naked feet of the seamen whilst asleep, and when brushed away by their hands, fastened on their fi. igers ! With a view of keeping hope alive among his almost dying companions, the captain offered two dollars, which he found iu his pocket, as a premium to the m m who should first descry relief; but faith and vigilance at last centered in himself;* alone; and, oil the evening of the sixth day, ( 4 t h October, in lat. 5 0 . 30. long. 14 ) Ire pro. videntia'ly espied a sail, which he' did not, however, announce for ten minutes, lest the stranger should not steer in their course. When ail doubt on so momentous a point was removed, he ordered the friendly bed- qailt, ( which had before been so serviceable, and was the only signal they c o u ld then muster,) to be hoisted ; and the harbinger of their joy proved to be the Sachem, of Boston, Captain Howland, frotii Liverpool to America, who immediately on perceiving the wre? k, bore down, and rescued the sufferers, at a moment when despair had apparently reduced nearly the whole of them to the last stage of existence. A f t e r being all safely removed from the wreck, Captain Howland, with genuine Christian. benevolence, treated them with the tenderne s of a parent— administering to them simple food iu limited quantities; and, by similar judicious means, their dormant'faculties were soon reanimated, and they were ail speedily restored to the use of their limbs. T w o days afterwards, tt! h e y MIRACULOUS PRESENTATION. The following are the interesting particulars of a late shipwreck, wherein the sufferings and privations of the survivors are almost without a parallel in the chequered details of the dangers to which seamen are exposed On the 4 t h of Sept. the brig Friendship, Captain N. F, Carder, sailed from Mii'tttnichi, New Brunswick, with a cargo of timber, for Bideford. On the morning of the 18th, she sprunfc a l e a k ; and, on the 22.1, ( the unremitting efforts of the crew at the pumps proving unavailing to keep her free,) she was full of water. In this deplorable condition, without the possibility of getting below, and distant, by their calculation, about 347 leagues from the coast of Ireland, they kept the vessel before the wind, under easy sail, in the forlorn hope of being able to make the land : but unhappily on the 2Sth, ( when, by supposition, they were about 7 0 leagues from Cape Clear,) a sudden squall coming on, she broached- to, and overset ! By this tnelanchiily disaster, two poor souls were washed overboard and drowned, and the whole of the provisions and water they had collected on deck, with both boats, and every moveable article, were swept away ! The rest of the crew, consisting of the captain, mate, three men, and four boys, with difficulty supported themselves oil the sid.- of the ship ; when, after remaining in this awful situation about 40 minutes, having i, n the meantime carried away her foremost, bowsprit, and main- topmast, she righted. From the condition the vessel was in, however, she had gradually settled abait, and from midships forward was the only part left above water, upon which the miserable survivors could obtain an insecure footing, every succeeding wave threatening to hurl them into the dreadful abyss 1" For stx tedious days and nights did these devoted sufferers remain in this wretched and hopeless state, without a morsel of bread to sustain the cravings of nature ! all of them very thinly clothed, several without shoes, stockings, or hats, and the few garments they wore constantly wet, owing to the rain that fell, and the sea that broke over them. From the former, however, they fortunately derived some sustenance ; for, ( luting rait;, they suspended a bed fell ill with the John, Capt. Brassey, from Africa to Liverpool ; to which vessel they were transferred, and, after again experiencing the humane and feeling regard due to their pitiable state, were safely landed at Liverpool on the 15th October. Their deliverance was most providential, as a gale of wind and heavy sea came on the following day, which must have swept every soul off the wreck. On the 11th, seven days after they were picked up, the vessel was fallen in with, in lat. 50. 57. long. 12. 30. linking at the mercy of the waves, by the Willinm, arrived at Liverpool from New Y. irk. We have been careful to detail the particulars of this singular escape, having obtained the inform a; ion from one ol the survivors; and were at the sama titne anxious to record so striking a: i example of the benefit to be derived, in similar circumstance* from that pious resignation, coolness, and intrepidity, by which the conduct of Capt. Carder was so eminently distinguished throughout tne whole of this very trying and appalling scene. From the L O N D O N G A Z E T T E , Dec. 5.

LONDON, Dec.'.). BONAPARTE'S ARRIVAL AT ST. HELENA. Further particulars of Bonaparte's arriv? l at St. Helena have reached us in letters from that Island, to the 22d October. On the 10th . of that month, his Majesty's ship Icarus arrived I there wilh the first tidings of Bonaparte's downfal, cf his being iu the power of the British, and of hii destination to that island as a place of confine ment. The inhabitants naturally, were struck with no small degree of surprise. It was of course learnt. at the same time, that a verv corisi. derable addition would be shade to the population of the Island by the new garrison, as well- as t hs attendants, of the Ex- Etnperor, tiie Commissioners to watch him, their suits, See. Accordingly nil was immediately hutry and bustle. Provisions experienced a sudden and enormous riie in price, figgs, which were before about 3 i . a doz.- n, noar advanced to Is. a- piece. Almost every other article of produce rose in the same proportion, and even land itself assumed au increased vjiue of 50 per cent, which is not much to be wondered at considering the small extent of the island, and the still smaller portion that is fit for cultivation, to feed the increased number of mouths, U: iT wards ( if 9 0 0 troops arrived out ill the squadron under charge of t b e ' N irthnmber'a- jdj A great b 11 - tie took place on the 1 U h in making preparations for the Ex- Emperor's reception ; SO of the Company's soldiers were stationed to guaiel the gates,, and orders were_ immediately issued by the Governor, that no fiihmg boats were to . n, out of the harbour after four o'clock Oil the 1.5th, the fi- et arrived ; sons from the town We re alllm cd to go on board the squadron to dine.

In moving the Court to pass this act of sederunt, the Lord President observed, that, at the end of last Summer Session, an interim act of sederunt had been passed for the purpose of regulating the procedure in such cases as might, during the vacation, be in a state of readiness to be remitted to a Jury ; but the Court declared, that they would, at the meeting of the Winter Session, revise the same, with such alterations as might be suggested by the different Law Bodies. During the vacation, his Lordship had transmitted copies of the act to these bodies, by whom various amendments had been snggested, most of whom had been adopted by the C o u i t ; and he now moved the Court to pass the act, in order that the cases . now in readiness to be sent to a Jury, might be* forthwith remitted to the Jury Court for trial. yesterday the Price of Bread fell a Half penny the Quartern Loaf at Edinburgh.

A B E R D E E N : SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1G, 1SI5. @ « n « r. ari) of ^ olitkiJ. IN a former number it was mentioned, that the Duke of Wellington was to remain in France, with the command of tl. e occupying army, intended to repress any effort that may be made to overlhrow the Bourbon Dynasty, and the restor- e! order of things. It is now announced, that not only is bis Grace to have the chief command, but his power in France is to be discretionary. The high contracting parties think it better not to specify the cases that may call for the interference of the occupyi- g army, but to leave the necessity of such interference lo the knowu prudence ai d discretion of the Duke, who is to say when aud how far it may be advisable to employ the troops under his orders, always supposing that he will not in any case so determine, without having concerted bis measures with the King of Prance. His Grace is thus constituted Dictator of the Freijch, without the slightest mention of any kind of responsibility fot his actions, provided he keeps the Bourbon Family on the Throne. Such an arrangement is unquestionablynew iu modern timet, but without having recourse to extraordinary measures, the Allies cannot hold France in subjection even for a week; and even with every exertion, it is not believed that they flatter themselves with the hopes of avoiding another contest. The very unusual detention of the French papers for more than eight days, owing to the violent gales that have prevailed in the. Chai. nei, leaves the public pill in suspense at to the fate of Ney ; but, by the lasc accounts received, it appeared to be the general opinion, that the Allies would think it expedient to put him to death, and, that ihe Peers would scarcely venture to disoblige them. M. ssen. i, anciher of the best French officers, was supposed to be in no small danger, the police having been for some time in quest of him, as well as Count Grouchy, and other distinguished charactcrs. At the same time that these state pi o- ecutions are going on, the Allies in theii public declarations recommend measures of concilia io. i to Louis, and that he shall by all means endeavour to gain the affections of his people. How far l e may succeed it is difficult to say, nor will it be evident that he is really popular in Fiance, till the foreign iurce is removed, which- at present overawes the Capital and a great part uf the country. The persecution of the Protestants Etill goes on in some parts of France, and it is not denied that the Court has not exerted itself ro put a stop to scenes so disgraceful to the age in wbivh we live. It is not a little singular, that while some of the Scotch Clergy, and the Dissenters in England, enter warmly into the cause of the suffering Protestants, and contribute to their relief, the English Hierarchy takes no concern in the matter, but seems to wait for some opinion on the part of our Rulers, as to whether the cause of the French Protestants may be espoused, without a very severe implied censure upon the restored Government of France. Napoleon was the fr. endand protector of the Protestants, and they in return were attached to his Person and Government; a political sin ol no small moment, in the estimation of those who profess High Church Doctrine. No doubt there are individuals high in the Church ol England, whosekuown liberal sentiments exempt them from the suspicion of servility upon the present occasion, as we have in thiscountry Pietbyterian Clergymen, who profess doctrines just as servile as those of Kmg James's Bishops; but it is honourable for the Dissenters from th Church of England to be the first to protest against the atrocities now comniittedin Fsance, and to call for the interposition of the Allies, that a stop may be put to the farther effusion of innocent blood. Upon the supposition that Europe ia to be at rest for many years to come, a supposition which the present aspect ot affairs will scarcely warranr, the war having been attended with the must unlooked lor success, the attention of the public is now directed to the results of victory. Many ostensible causes for commencing and continuing the war against France have been held out to the public, but it is now publicly acknowledged, that the war was undertaken and earned on against Revolutionary or Re. publican Principles, and for the support ot the old Governnifnts, supposed to be in danger. It was continually repeated to the people, thatsuccessin this war would ensure our prosperity ; that Agriculture and Commerce would flourish ; and that the situation of the country would be nearly what it was at the commencement of the present reign, when the counsels of the great Pitt had placed the country at the head of European powers. On the other hand, the success of the French arms was represented as the greatest calamity that could befai Europe; and the greatest misfortunes it was . aid would 5 come upon this countty, should France retain her ascendancy under the Emperor uf her choice. Whatever differences of opinion may ex. st concerning events yet to come, the arrival ol these events ascertains at once what judgment was the most correct; and with regard to the French war, the question is now decided between those who promised every blessing from the suceess of the war, and those who contended chat ic never ou>' ht to hive been undertaken— that we ought to have lived on terms of good agreement with the French people, without pretending to interfere in their internal Government. At no period uf our history have the affairs of this country Wore a more gloomy appearance than now, that the objects of the war are fully accomplished, for not one of tlie hopes held out to the peopie lias been realised; and ill consequence of what it was asserttd would ensure prospe. it), the country is immediately threatened with evils wnun must nave the n. ost disastrous effects, and altogether uiihinger. ocie- t). Every member ol snciety is uuw bcuuglit tu umkrst^ aa how a iiii: iqn nuy he r « iu- Finarcs may p'oducc want and e- otiseq- ifnt anarchy— ind how unprofitable the tr3de of war really is. The first class of society : o feel the effects of tho war system has been that composed of Agriculturist", especially Farmers, who, in consequence of the restriction of paper credit, rendered unavoidable by the state of the funds, find that the value of their produce no l. m; er hears any fair proportion to their rents. Some Landlords have endeavoured to alleviate their di. ttess by reducing the rents, but rhe example cannot be genera'ly followed, if it could, it would prove bur a partial and ineffectual remedy ; for, according to the prese. nt prices, grain and meal could not be raised were the tenants altogether rentfree. Ill many parts of England as well as . Scotl ind, it is generally understood, and freely spnktn of, that rents cannot be piid for anotker year in the present stare cf things; and how the present state of tilings is co be altered for the better is the great deiidtrvlum. That all classes- i '. the community must be affected sooner or brer, by thi distress of the Farmers, is sufficiently evident; the Landl . rds, ihe Shopkeepers, the Manufacturers, andai last the whole body of the people. Already remedies have been proposed Ibrfhis alarming state of affairs, but no remedy can lie effectual without an increase of Revenue or diminution of Expenditure; but although our Expenditure is very considerably reduced since the late successes in Fiance, it is doubted whether the reduction is not fully balanced by the deficiency of many of the taxes. I: appears to have been in contemplation to relieve the Farmers from a very considerable pirt of the Pioperry Tax ; but such relief, if afforded to Farmers, oughr to be extended to all who suffer in the same manner with them, and from the same causes— and as in the one case it would be ineffectual, in the other it is, upon the present system, impracticable. We may, however, believe that great ingenuity will be exerted upon tile occasion, and great efforts made to avoid the shock attending the dissolution of what has become the great bond ot Society, and chief instrument by which our Ministers conciliate support; but no country,. situat- d as ours now is, ever recovered a flourishing state ol finance, without having first, in one way or oilier, broken engagements with the national creditor, la France, the disorder of the? Finances was found completely incurable, although great efforts were ma. le; all- f the consequences we have seen.— The fol! ow; ng semarfcs we give Irom Cobbett, as regarding the state of !' ng! aud, and which there is reason to believe is not much exaggerated. " In the country, it Is thought pretty generally, that the taxes wiit be paid this year ; but, that this year will be the last. This is a wrong notion. The taxes will fail by degrees. Pretty fast, 1 allow ; but, all branches will tall off in nearly the same degree, except the pedlar's tax; for that will increase, as it arises from licences, vmich enable people to* av « ii themselves of the privilege of slewing under hedg? « . The trades- people feel the effect of the want of money even more than the farmers. 1 he inn- keepers feel it in a very striking way. Where 20 farmers used to dine at market, at the expence of ten fifteen shillings a head, five do not now dine, and they not at mote than eight shillings a head. Winc was their dt'nk; they cracked their bottle, while they sang ' God save the King' andcurscd the Jacubin3. Now they rise no higher than a glass of grog, and that made, perhaps, of smuggled brandy. The market- day wzs, in all parts of the country, a day of gaiety and bustle in the towns. The shops were filled with customers. T he villages and farm- houses sent iu their money. Now, they have no money to t? r. d in. All is poverty. Nsibody can either make purchases, or pay debt .'' t ; s'ttch, however*, as were sold, h.- ough: good prices.

The loss, we regret to state, will be very considerable, as besides that uf some grain in the barn, five Oxen, and a fine Horse, fell victims to the destructive element, servants clothes, bedding, & c. being also consumed. Notwithstanding the greatest exertions of all belonging to the Farm Town, one horse was alune saved, by a servant at the risk of his own life, there being none of the neighbours aware of the disaster before ii was too late to render any effectt: il assistance. The Treasurer of the Sic* Alan's Friend received, on Monday laat, One Pound Five Shillings, part of the Wages forfeited by a female servant ( after paying exprnce-) for leaving her place — a most seasonable supply, at the funds are at present exhausted; and for which he expresses hit thanks in the nam- of the Society. Tuesday, a female servant in this place, a middle- aged woman, suddenly dropped down iu the street, and almost instantly expired. It is with much coyrern we have to state, that the Small Pox has recently made its appearance iu this city ; several very malignant cases having occurred within the last few days. The benetits< of Vaccination are now so thoroughly established, that \ ve are surprised any persons shouid be ( Ound, to inattentive to the welfare of their families, as to delay submitting their children to its salutary operation— panicularly wneu they know, that there is an institution in the place for the purpose of administering it gratis to all classes; and where the utmost attention is paid by a Medical Gentleman of experience, to the ' progtess and cure uf every case. The law imposes a heavy penalty upon parents, whose children have the ordinary small pox, exposing them on the streets, or not taking due precautions to keep rhe contagion confined to their own houses; aud ss e trust th- ac those concerned will carefully comply with its enactments, as they tender the livesand safety ot their telluw creatures. MELAKCHOIY ACCIUENT.— On Mondsy the 27th ult. George Pirie, farm seivantat Oldtown of Cu. ter, parish of Peterculter, was unfortunately kdled while attending a Threshiug Mill, by one of the ievers of the horse course catching him, and compressing his head between it and tne wail. The many accidents ol this description, which it is our painful duty to record, ought to operate as a warning to all persons employed about machinery, whocanuot be toocautioua in approa. iiing it when in motion.

The melancholy particulars of this disastrous storm will be found in our preceding columns. Among the many losses enumerated, is that of a brig seen to founder with ail on boaid in i t fathoms water, within half a mile of the Pier Head of Sunderland, The vessel was mt. king more sail to get to the bar, a man being seen in the act of casting loose the maintop sail immediately before she disappeared. From part of the wreck cast ashore, she proves to be the Miner » a- of Shields, a itrig of about se ven keels. The following Aberdeen vessels have suffered loss or damage in the gale ;— . « ThsSrurick Lord Huntly, Turner, from ibis place to London, lost an airchpi and cable, and was carried into Colchester leaky, l. y the assistance of some boats, after be rg'oie the Gunfl-. e SaDd. The Brig Marchioness r. f flun t ' y , Thomson, from London to Trieste, was driven 0: 1 shore ne ar Sheerness, but got off 17 asciitiiue from the shore, v. ith loss of rudder. The Brig Hero, Kei h, from Riga to London, is arlived with the loss ot three anchors and cables in the Swin. The Brig Ni;> t! liss, Se- llar, from Sunderland to London, also lost an anchor atid'cahle in the Swin. It is stated, that the S-. vm was full of buoys or., anchors, cut from by vessels exposed to the fury of this vi . lent gale, few or none of which, fron tiie system of plunder prevalent oil that eastern part of the coast, an be recovered by the proper owners ; a grievance which loud calls for the interposition of the Legislature, by some effectual regulations for prevention of so great an aggravation to the losses sustained on unfortunate occasions. Extract of a letter from Capt. William Duncan, of the Britannia of this Fort, date. t Spitbsad, December 8, 1815. " You will be surprised a receiving this from Spithead, instead of Sunderland, but wo are very hippy that we ; t. £!. have got to this p'tic?. Wc left the Nore on Tuesday morning, aud at I o o'clock at night, when we had reach ed as far as Yarmouth, v/ e were taken with a very heavy g . le of wind from the N. W. with snow, which continued till 4 next afternoon, whi n it shifted to N. N. E. b owing very hard ; at that time we were over on the coast of Holland, and expected to go no shore, but by carrying a press i f sail we reached the North Foreland ; owing to the shifting of rhe wind we could nbt'bring up in the Dawns, we therefore run lor Spithead. I saw two Brigs and a G - lliot on shore in the Downs, there are upwards of 30 sail here, who cut from their anchors in that road stead. fhere were- twelve sail put off tile land with us, and I am much afraid that tome of them have been lost; wc patted company when the wind shifted." The Sloop Malvina, Begg, from Cadiz for Aberdeen, after, encountering very boisterous weather in the English Channel, was last week put into St. Ives, with loss of her main- boom. The Schooner Barbara, Thomson, of and for this place, with wine aud fruit from Oporto, was driven into St. Ives in distress, with the lost of htr saila, and other damage, in a hard gale 011 the 6th inst. The Brig Nicholas, Gibboo, pirsiei tb- J Sound for X. o( vlon, 011 the 28th ult. The Brig Glentannef, Leslie, was loaded at Quebec on the 3d uls. and expected to sail in a tew days afterwarels. The Brigs Anne, Cormack ; and Havvke, Gibbon, are arrived at Cadiz trom London. The Eliza and Anne of Montrose, John Meirns, master, from Munlochy, with a cargo of wood, bouud for Blyth, was upon the 6th inst. while endeavouring to take the harbour of Peterhead carried by the violence of the tea upon the rocksat the back of the West Quay, where she still remains ; and where, if it do not continue moderate weather, the will become a total wreck.
